The CAT Risk Management & Modelling ONLINE Summit is in its 8th year as the only independent global CAT risk conference series. Since its inception in 2013, it has played host to CAT risk modelling experts in Sydney, Singapore, London and greater Europe

2019/20 has been difficult for so many. From typhoons, windstorms, fires, and floods, to a defining event of our time in COVID-19, we have faced a raft of devastating primary and secondary perils over the past year. As a result, global insurance losses continue to increase.

And still we have not yet seen the sort of major nat cat peril that many predict is imminent. So are current models adequate for the future? What is the viability of alternative risk transfer solutions? And how should we underwrite certain types of emerging risk?

Join us at the 8th annual CAT Risk Management & Modelling ONLINE Summit to participate in a discussion between re/insurers, modellers, brokers, climate scientists, NAT CAT specialists, cyber modellers, ILS managers, and other members of the insurance risk fraternity, on how we can provide practical solutions to these pressing problems.
